After 10 years and $18m spent on the investigation as to why the aircraft crashed, The AAIB reported the plane attempted take off without engines...lessons would be learnt..

After 75 Days the sole survivor of the crash in the high Andes claimed his fellow passengers had all died in the accident and their bones were picked over by the Vultures.
